"Water Music" signals a pivot, marked by a quality not usually associated with Perelman’s music. His improvisations here contain a new emphasis on melodic lines; I’d even dare call them “lyrical." In fact, this was always present to some degree and maybe not always recognizable to everyone...
...Perelman’s music, like the ocean, has always had its own sense of time and rhythm, as it ebbs and flows in waves and currents. On this album, the music and the sea are a bit more in sync.
